Driver Gets Misdemeanor After Killing Judge On Bike

Some are asking if a misdemeanor charge is sufficient punishment for killing another person with their vehicle. Likewise, when a distracted 79-year-old driver that hit and killed a judge on his bicycle who had not been using drugs or alcohol at the time of the accident, apparently got off the hook with a lesser sentence. Therefore, the man received a misdemeanor reckless driving plea, was sentenced to six months probation, and had to pay a $670 fine. Furthermore, lawmakers have begun to look into potentially upgrading the state law to impose heavier punishments for such conduct.
